Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir cinnamon and brown sugar through the melted butter; remove from heat and stir crushed saltine crackers into the butter until moistened.
  3. Pour enough water into a baking dish to be about 1 inch deep. Lay the acorn squash into the water with the rounded sides down. Fill the cavity of the squash with the saltine cracker mixture.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the squash is easy to pierce with a fork, about 45 minutes.

Loved this simple way to prepare acorn squash. I wondered what the crush saltines would do texture-wise to this dish. It baked up crunchy, chewy, sweet, salty and delicious. Due to a time crunch, I started the squash in the microwave with the cavities filled and microwaved for about 6 minutes. This made my small halves almost completely cooked. I then put them in a toaster oven at 350° to finish baking, about 15 minutes. My son ate the second half for his lunch the next day and I received a text that read "That squash was awesome!" Yep, that pretty much summed up the taste of this squash - awesome!

Exactly what I wanted! I made it twice, the second time I increased the amount of saltines and I also added walnut pieces. Delicious. Thanks!
